Music video for the song Mushrooms (known as White Magic Mushrooms) by Garaz. An unhappy zoo keeper falls in love with the zoo’s director, but she has already given her heart to Tony Duchaacek. A psychedelic tale comprising live action as well as animation, this short was conceived in Inventura’s own film workshop which produces original shorts every year for the festival to amuse and move.

Petr and Eva are quite an ordinary couple, but they are occupied by some concerns rather extraordinary for their age. Why is no one willing to understand that they have the right to privacy and that they are not little children anymore? Let us explain it all from the beginning: a man and a woman, love, sex, children or not, that has to be thoroughly considered. A short animated film About Sex… takes those, who are often considered to be children despite their real age and therefore do not have sufficient information or education, through the pitfalls of sexuality and intimate relationships. And as for others, a little revision can do you no harm.
